A Flechette is a small dart shaped projectile, that is clustered in an explosive warhead, dropped in a missile from an airplane or fired from a hand held weapon. One unique application of this 1" Flechette was to load these in a 12 GA. shotgun for taking out snipers hiding in thick brush or trees. Due to the penetration of these projectiles, tree limbs and brush would not disperse the darts. Even if some were dispersed, this would still have an all-covering pattern within a tree or brush. These were heavily utilized during the Viet-nam era, often referred to as the “beehive” round. Generally 28 of these darts are placed in each 12 GA. shell,18 in each 20 GA shell and 8 in each .410 shell. Also known as "Satan's Toothpicks" 2 3/4" round.
